Report Late Payers

If a company knows you report your payment data, their ability to obtain credit, bank loans and to purchase on terms will be affected. As a result, they will have a greater incentive to pay you on time.

Reward On-time Payers

More payment data on a credit report can give a company a higher credit score and limit. By reporting on customers who pay on time, you’re helping them build and even improve their credit profile.

Reporting Trade Data every month is easy and we don’t need a special "membership" (aka additional fee) to report customers that are slow and late paying. We feel this is a very important factor in the business world - you shouldn’t have to “pay extra” to let other businesses know what kind of customer they may have applying for credit.
